Sets out the indicators for measuring adult social care outcomes in 2014 and 2015.
The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) measures how well care and support services achieve the outcomes that matter most to people.
- supports councils to improve the quality of care and support services they provide
- gives a national overview of adult social care outcomes in 2012 to 2013
- looks at how the framework will be developed in future
The ASCOF Handbook of Definitions sets out the technical detail of each measure, with examples to minimise confusion and inconsistency in reporting and interpretation. The Handbook for the 2014 to 2015 ASCOF will be released in the spring.
See how each local authority compared against the measures in the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework for 2012 to 2013. The data used for comparison will be updated every 6 months.
